10th aniversary bottlings from the Independant Bottler The Nectar from Belgium.

Unlike most other grain whisky distilleries, the company that owns Invergordon is not a member of the Scotch Whisky Association. That's not the only exception; it's also the only grain whisky distillery that's not located in (or at least very close to) the Lowlands. Instead, the Invergordon distillery can be found in the Northern Highlands, not far from Dalmore and Glenmorangie.

The distillery was founded fairly recently (between 1959 and 1961) by Invergordon Distillers Ltd. This company would become part of Whyte & MacKay in 1993. Nowadays they manage to produce circa 40,000,000 litres of alcohol per year at the Invergordon grain whisky distillery. For a relatively short period of time (between 1965 and 1977), the Ben Wyvis malt whisky distillery was located at the same address.

When they started out, Invergordon operated with just a single column still. Two more stills were added in 1963 and a another (much larger) one in 1978. This new, larger Coffey still was used for the production of neutral spirit.  The water required for the production is sourced from Loch Glass.
